The most important aspect that they look for in such a case is that the candidate not take away a job from a U.S. worker. The second is that the candidate does not have immigrant intent and will go back home when done. This is partially because the job does not require a bachelor's degree or higher. The visas normally associated with such jobs require non-immigrant intent. There are really two visas available from what you are describing.
1) The H-2B worker visa is one. For an H-2B worker visa, it is expensive and difficult to get because you, the employer would have to go through an expensive process called a Labor Certification where the position is advertised in the local media, you must receive all resumes and eliminate all candidates for valid reasons, not just because you have a job for her. This is to prove that she would not be taking a job away from a U.S. worker. Here is a link:
